Diamond P Ranch is located in eastern Iowa close to the Mississippi River. The Powell family runs the farming operation in the small town of Blue Grass, Iowa.

The land has been in the family for over 100 years. The farm had seen several years with no livestock – only being used for crop ground. The fencing and pastures had fallen into disrepair. Scott took over the operation in 2004, added Kim in 2005 and started the Diamond P Ranch that spring. The ‘big bosses’, Owen, Cody, Levi, and Reed would soon arrive. Owen came in late 2006, Cody arrived in May of 2008, we welcomed Levi in late October 2010, and Reed rounded out our family when he came in May 2013. The boys are a constant joy and hopefully will one day continue the family farm together.   A good friend reminded us recently that the days are long, but the years are short!

Today we farm nearly 1,000 acres, of owned and rented ground, with the homestead sitting on nearly 200 acres on the edge of town. We have a growing registered hereford and commercial cattle herd, run a grain operation, offer hay sales and are blessed to be doing all of this as a family. The farm is a wonderful place to raise our boys and is a lifestyle that we all love!

If you’re in the area, stop by. The coffee is always on and there is a horse that is ready to go for a ride!
